    <picky>I'd like to know how else one generates sound.</picky> :D

    /OT

    You have the same board, CPU and O/C, case and HDD as me :eeek:

    And isn't that the Zalman 400ABS in this picture. Looks exactly like mine.

    Which would be the result of mechanical fans no doubt ??? :hehe:

    sigh...

    example:

    Add grill to fan = Whoosh

    Remove Fan = No Whoosh

    Whoosh not mechanical although caused by mechanical fans. Whoosh caused by air hitting grill dissipating energy through sound waves.

    That HSF looks pretty good - should suit an overclocked 2500+ just nicely it seems....

    I was actually being more pedantic than that, sound IS mechanical, it has to have a medium through which to travel and is transmitted mechanically. No medium, like in a vacuum, no sound. Anyway, that's enough of the science lesson. :D

    Just like electricity is mechanical with its movement of electrons?

    Dodgy science teaching there... In a very abstract or philosophical way that statement may be correct, then again I would be upset if my kid's science teacher tought him that!

    Hmm, well it has been a while, but I think I'm right - those physics lessons seem so long ago now. In order for something to generate sound, something has to move or vibrate, kinetic energy.

    I'm really plumbing the depths of my memory here, so if anyone has a definitive answer, I'm quite intrigued now. :D


    Not sure, an electron has mass and speed in addition to it's charge, so there is a mechanical/kinetic element to it, isn't there? I dunno, I'm on really shaky ground here, any physicists out there that actually know what they're talking about?
